A wonderful, get-away-from-it-all holiday

As a family with 2 small children we were keen to find a holiday that would satisfy all our needs; lots of playing space, near a beach, ponies for the boys, historical cities for visiting, chilling out time and just something new and different.
Our week-long break at Amber Farm was divine and ticked all our boxes. The weather varied from one day which was drizzly and cool to a couple of days of Majorca-type heat but we adjusted our activities accordingly and didnt miss out.
We spent a few days at the amazingly wide and white-sanded Leba beach which is no more than 15 minutes drive away, as well as visiting the huge sand dunes in the nearby national park - and everyone enjoyed riding the bikes we hired for the morning. The Tarzan Park (climbing activities) and Jurassic Park (dinosaur and nature park) are good if you have younger children.
A couple of very, very nice dinners were had at the marina restaurant, and apart from that every other meal out was filling and freshly made. The Polish aren't big wine drinkers - beer and spirits are the order of the day, and wine choice is a bit limited.
Although we hired a car for the duration of our stay, we decided to take the train for the 2-hour journey to Gdansk to visit this stunning, must-see city. The children loved the touristy nick-nacks and walking along the riverside; we loved the carefully-rebuilt architecture, and the good food and wine.
I can't emphasise enough the friendliness and helpfullness of everyone we came in contact with from Karolina and Wojciech at the farm to the shop staff in the local deli in Wicko through to the staff at the larger Biedronka supermarket in Lebork (don't bother with the Lidl, we found Biedronka to be far better in terms of pricing, customer service and product choice).
The farm has a wifi connection which was a must for us, and although slow, it meant we could stay in touch with our office. This was a big plus.
The one comment I would make which would have enhanced our stay beyond the excellent experience it was, would be that some local tourist information within the apartment would have been welcome - maybe even a guests' comments book where those staying could share their experiences of great places to visit, good eateries and recommended activities.
